Senryu or Haiku?

She said it.
He said it.
I read it.
Therefore, it must be true–
my senryu is a haiku.
So who ever knew
that one was
and the other was not?
Surely not I
and certainly not me
and now I’m blue
as blue can be
because my haiku
is not my senryu.

    I really enjoyed this poem. It made me think of gossip. Maybe I’m just bringing too much to the work after this week, but anyway…I like it.
